Video: Jorginho’s sumptuous piece of skill goes viral after Chelsea’s win over Brentford
A piece of individual brilliance on the part of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has gone viral across social media on the back of the Blues’ meeting with Brentford.
Thomas Tuchel and co. were of course back in action on Wednesday night.
Amid a shaky spell of recent form, which had seen them not only slip off the pace of the Premier League summit, but also surrender their Champions League group table-topping status at the last, Chelsea made the short trip to Brentford, for a Carabao Cup quarter-final showdown.
And, when all was said and done, in a boost for all associated with the club, the European champions got things firmly back on track.
A hard-fought 90 minutes ultimately culminated in the visitors emerging on the right side a 2-0 scoreline, owing to a Pontus Jansson own goal, and Jorginho’s late spot-kick.
Jorginho’s moment of magic
As alluded to above, though, it was not Jorginho’s result-clinching strike which, on the back of the action coming to a close in west London, in fact resulted in the Italian’s name taking centre stage online.
Instead, this came owing to a sumptuous piece of individual skill on the part of the midfield maestro.
Late in the action in the capital, after receiving the ball in the middle of the park, Jorginho pulled out an altogether unique double drag-of-sorts.
The move resulted in not one, but two Brentford stars being taken completely out of the game, before setting a Chelsea attack in motion through N’Golo Kante.
Footage of the moment in question, since re-posted by droves of adoring Chelsea supporters, can be seen below:
